. bloomberg saying essentially i'm not scared of the gun lobby and i'm certainly not scared of harry reid. god bless michael bloomberg for that. passing a gun bill is so much more important than reflecting mark pryor in. i would satisfies that senate seat just to make sure we do what is right for background checks and live by it. if that's what you believe in, then do it. reid is not the only one avoiding another vote. vice president joe biden said yesterday that now is not the time. he said it should wait until the senate is done debating immigration reform which means through the summer. but during that time thousands more americans will be killed by guns. and compared to other countries with tightening gun safety laws, our death toll is staggering. in 2008 the u.s. had 12,000 firearm related homicide. and in that same year japan had 11. 11. that's half the number killed at newtown and a third at virginia tech. why? japanese law for bids gun ownership while american law glorifies it. and in in the u.k. had 155 gun deaths in 2010. more than that occurred here in just three weeks. wayne lapier
